Over the River and Through the woods

by Joe Di Pietro

"Over the River and Through the Woods" is Joe DiPietro's tender, loving comedic look at an Italian-American family. Nick Cristiano is a 25 year old Italian at the crossroad of his life. For his entire life, Nick and his four grandparents have gathered for the traditional Sunday night family dinner. This tradition is about to change when Nick breaks the news that he is leaving Hoboken, New Jersey for a job promotion in Seattle. Bent on keeping their grandson around, the four grandparents hatch a plot to keep him in town. Hilarity is the name of the game during the first act, with many touching and poignant moments during the second act where Nick learns the meaning of being part of a loving family with the Italian mantra of "Tengo Famiglia"! This is a must see show that will warm your hearts.
